Nick is a creative genius, combining fine art and natural history to produce exquisite entomological pieces. Nick recently exhibited in a sell-out show at the Loughran Gallery on Motcomb Street in London. He also helped the Rich brothers win Gold at this summer’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show. We have worked with Nick on a number of projects including private client commissions. Please contact us if you would like to know more.
Born in Luanshya, Zambia in 1975, Nick Jeffrey has created original art forms born out of a fascination with the natural world. Working with butterflies, insects, flowers and fish, Nick celebrates the colours, textures and patterns found in the fleeting brilliance of nature. Increasingly well-known for his spectacular butterfly artworks, Nick combines raw and modern materials such as Perspex, resin and mirrors with real butterflies from the sustainable farming industry, helping to protect the species with the conservation of their habitats. Using light, reflections and shadows to replicate movement, Nick has pioneered and adapted new techniques to capture the transient beauty of the species in life and art. Most recently Nick has also taken inspiration from ancient techniques such as 15th century fresco painting and traditional Japanese art forms, including Shinto shrine screen paintings and gyotaku fish prints, combining art with natural science and entomology.
“It is this passion for the world we live in and a determined observation that leads me to learn as much about it from the great naturalists, and to inquire into new ways of representing nature to others.”
